Winners of King's Cultural Challenge 2018

Posted on 11/04/2018

King's Cultural Challenge invites students to debate and develop ideas for how arts and culture can make a positive difference to the world. Each year King’s sets a new Challenge and this year students were ask to respond to the question, ‘Art Changes Everything: How can arts and cultural organisations or programmes transform lives and influence the world over the next decade?’


Twelve finalists pitched their ideas to their peers and directors from six partner organisations: the V&A, Roundhouse, Royal Opera House, Southbank Centre, Breathe Arts Health Research and Science Gallery London. These innovative ideas aimed to address issues such as homelessness, migrant integration, mental health and loneliness. Six winners were announced with each securing a prestigious paid internship with King’s Cultural Challenge partner organisations.

The six winners were:

Hannah Wigfield for Take 2 Cinema, a project providing opportunities for rough sleepers to take weekly trips to the cinema, allowing them to network, be creative and learn about services available to them.

Daisy Stopher for Crafting Generations, a project inviting older generations to share their craft-based skills with university students.

George Ackerley for 98 Questions (for the Modern Kid), a book for primary school children that invites them to visit a marketplace and learn about other cultures through the items they might buy or play with.

Angela Chan for The Cli-fi Coalition, athree-tiered project that sees cultural institutions work with artists to develop climate change-themed work, such as exhibitions and research initiatives.

Pauline Meyer for Foreshadowing, a project where staff members from cultural institutions shadow the lives of people who the organisation want to connect with in order to develop a better understanding of that particular group’s needs.

Daniel Hardman for ARTiculate: A Nation in Conversation, a national project where cultural institutions, schools, and art groups create a piece of art in response to a specific theme. This piece of art is passed onto organisations across the country who creates a piece in response. The chain continues to build, until a number of pieces are created and showcased as part of an exhibition.

Congratulations to all of our winners and participants.
